: All parts of the study, both quantitative and qualitative, were conducted in accordance with the principles outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki. The study was approved by the Ethics Committee of the University of Split School of Medicine (Class: 003-08/11-0310005, Reg. No: 2181-198-03-04/10-11 -0038) as a part of the project funded by the Croatian Science Foundation: Professionalism in Health (ProHealth) (grant No. IP-2014-09-7672). All participants, both in quantitative and qualitative parts of the study, were informed about the purpose of the study, were assured their identities would remain protected, and that they were not obliged to participate. In the paper-based survey, they were told that continuing to fill out the survey was considered to be their consent to participation. After the survey, which was filled in after regular classes, we asked for volunteers for interviews on this topic and considered their verbal consent sufficient to continue with an interview, as the application to the Ethics Committee did not specify the way informed consent should be obtained. Voice recordings from the interviews were used only for obtaining the transcripts, and the transcripts were anonymized, saved as encrypted and password-protected files at a secure server.
